Praise for the previous edition: "The new sixth edition of Principles of Biomedical Ethics is a welcome event. There is nothing else like it in the field of bioethics. It has easily become over the years the most used, most praised, and most distinguished book in the field. Each edition moves beyond the previous ones in important and nuanced ways. Beauchamp and Childress keep up with the ever-changing terrain of bioethics, and work hard to refine their own arguments. It gets better and better. One can hardly ask for more."--Daniel Callahan, Director, International Program, The Hastings Center"What is by far the best general book on bioethics has gotten even better. The new material on international justice and virtue ethics is especially valuable. Such a combination of accessibility and rigor is rarely attained."--Allen Buchanan, James B. Duke Professor of Philosophy and James B. Duke Professor of Public Policy Studies, Duke University"This sixth edition of Principles of Biomedical Ethics reaffirms its undisputed stature as a canonical text for the world's bioethicists. It maintains a standard of scholarship and clarity appealing to neophytes and seasoned scholars, to adherents and critics of its principled approach."--Edmund D. Pellegrino, Chairman, President's Council on Bioethics"The contemporary field of bioethics is unimaginable, absent this text. Principles of Biomedical Ethics provided a paradigmatic approach that shaped the early character of bioethics. It continues to be a source of serious debate regarding the nature of morality and the significance of bioethics. No one can understand the field of bioethics apart from this volume."--H. Tristram Engelhardt, Jr., M.D., Professor, Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine"Like all of its previous incarnations, this new edition of Principles of Biomedical Ethics offers the reader a window onto the cutting edge of contemporary bioethics. Never content to merely recyc

Long on theory, short on application 6. März 2013
Von Doug Erlandson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Some would consider "Principles of Biomedical Ethics" by Tom Beauchamp and James Childress a classic in the field. If one judges this solely by the number of editions it has gone through, then this would be true. (It is now in its seventh edition.) However, if one's criteria include its applicability to the needs of those entering or currently in the healthcare profession, it is anything but a classic, since it is sorely lacking in concrete, real-life examples.

Beauchamp and Childress discuss some of the standard concepts found in medical ethics, such as the moral status of patients, patient autonomy, beneficense, nonmaleficence, and medical staff-patient relationships, but they do so in what is for the most part a highly abstract fashion, only occasionally giving what passes as a practical example. (I say "what passes as," because it is evident that at least some of these are the type of examples that professional philosophers think up rather than citing real examples of real people who have real problems that are being treated by real professionals in the real medical community.)

This book might be useful in a graduate seminar in a philosophy department. However, its description on Amazon bills it as appropriate for undergraduate courses in bioethics and healthcare ethics. These are the courses that people intending to go into the healthcare professions take to fulfill a requirement for graduation from their program. They are not planning on becoming professors of philosophy. What Beauchamp and Childress have to offer is largely irrelevant to their needs.

I have nearly 30 years' experience teaching philosophy. Two years ago I was asked to teach biomedical ethics for the first time. The first section I taught the text had already been assigned. It was the Beauchamp and Childress text. I largely ignored the text, because I knew it would be irrelevant to the students, all of whom were planning on becoming healthcare professionals. The next time around I chose a different text, one that had far more of practical value. I was glad I did.

Classic! 8. Juni 2013
Von Danilo c a de Sousa - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
A classical review of some bioethics principles. Interesting to understand better how the Bioethics of Intervention is more complete than the Bioethics of Principles.
Very good book 9. Juni 2014

This is a very well written book that met the expectation of those who want to begin the study of bioethics.
